Courses: Democracy and Development (ECONB385001)

Spring 2008

Class Number: 1005
I
New Course: From 1974 to the late 1990’s the number of democracies
grew from 39 to 117. This “third wave:, the collapse of communism and
developmental successes in East Asia have led some to argue the
triumph of democracy and markets. Since the late 1990’s, democracy’s
third wave has stalled, and some fear a reverse wave and democratic
breakdowns. We will question this phenomenon through the disciplines
of economics, history, political science and sociology drawing from
theoretical, case study and classical literature. Economics majors
taking this course should check with the department. Cross listed
with POLS B385. Enrollment is limited to 15 students, with preference
to Junior and Senior Economics and Political Science Majors.
